Condolence From: Kendall Merriam, Rockland's Inaugural Poet Laureate
Condolence: We only knew Mr.Ilvonen near the very end of his passage through this time when his son, Jake,and other workers paved our driveway which will with plowing and shoveling. One other effect is that our cats, at first suspicious,now our cats luxuriate on the warm asphalt. The job came inexactly on the estimate. Mr. Ilvonen called us and asked if we were pleased with the job and seemed gratified at our approval. The Finns of Knox County worked hard dealing with stones of all types as their ancestors had back in rocky Finland. Mr. Ilvonen carried on this tradition with honor. Kendall and Phyllis Merriam

Condolence: I am sad and my heart goes out to the family and friends of Uno. I knew him myself very well, and he was a funny, outgoing, and friendly man. He could always make one feel comfortable around him because of his natural ability to make one laugh and just "hang out" with him. He was a natural conversationalist. I am sure he will be missed by so many. My heart also goes out to Ramona, his companion, who has been a good friend.

Condolence: I'm so sorry to hear of Uno's passing. He was such a kind, funny man and a great friend. He was so great to work for as well. My heart goes out to the kids and the rest of his family. I wish I could be there for his celebration of life. If it's one thing that Uno knew how to do it was celebrate life! May he rest in peace!

Condolence From: Skip & Michelle Heald
Condolence: Uno was a straight shooter. You didn't have to wonder what he was thinking, He would tell you, regardless if you wanted to hear it or not. Its what I liked most about him. When my phone would ring at the office prior to 6am during the weekday I always knew it would be him on the other end. He was a hard working guy that had a great business sense.

To his family, please accept my wife Michelle and my condolences. RIP Uno you will be missed by all that knew you.
